  • Presentación al volumen: Patrimonio paleontológico

    • Authors: Esperanza Fernández-Martínez, Enrique Peñalver Mollá
      Pages: 1 - 2
      Abstract: Este número de la revista SJP está dedicado a recoger diferentes perspectivas sobre los fósiles y los yacimientos paleontológicos desde el punto de vista del patrimonio. El patrimonio paleontológico comprende aquellos yacimientos y fósiles a los que se ha otorgado un valor cultural, sea de tipo científi co, educativo o recreativo. Como tal patrimonio, el paleontológico tiene algunos rasgos específi cos entre los que destacan el hecho de estar constituido a la vez por elementos muebles (fósiles) e inmuebles (yacimientos), y el gran atractivo que ejercen los fósiles entre el público general, una cualidad que es parcialmente responsable del elevado riesgo de degradación que presenta por expolio. Otro rasgo de este patrimonio es que en España se encuentra vinculado a dos normativas diferentes: las derivadas de la Ley 16/1985, de 25 de junio, del Patrimonio Histórico Español, y las vinculadas a la Ley 42/2007, de 13 de diciembre, del Patrimonio Natural y de la Biodiversidad (y de su modifi cación en la Ley 33/2015 de 21 de septiembre). Es importante señalar que, a pesar de esta duplicidad legislativa, el paleontológico es uno de los patrimonios más amenazados en nuestro país, ya que en la práctica ninguna de estas legislaciones ha asegurado la conservación de los yacimientos y el uso responsable de sus fósiles.

  • La paleontología: el convidado de piedra de la Ley de Patrimonio
           Histórico de 1985

    • Authors: Jorge Morales
      Pages: 3 - 16
      Abstract: La ley de Patrimonio Histórico Español (PHE) de 1985 después de casi 35 años de su promulgación sigue viéndose desde el ámbito de las Ciencias Naturales con escepticismo no exento de contestación. En este trabajo se revisan los orígenes y causas de la inclusión de la Paleontología y Geología en esta ley, así como las consecuencias de su aplicación. Se concluye que solo desde las universidades puede abordarse un plan conjunto que evite la fragmentación e infravaloración de las colecciones paleontológicas, mediante el desarrollo de una red nacional de colecciones paleontológicas.

  • Metodología y estado actual del patrimonio paleontológico en el
           inventario español de lugares de interés geológico

    • Authors: Juana Vegas, Graciela Delvene, Silvia Menéndez, Ana Cabrera, Ángel García-Cortés, Enrique Díaz-Martínez, Luis Carcavilla, Isabel Rábano
      Pages: 17 - 34
      Abstract: El Inventario Español de Lugares de Interés Geológico (en adelante IELIG) es un inventario de patrimonio geológico sistemático de reconocimiento avanzado, que está diseñado metodológicamente para cubrir todo el territorio español e identificar los Lugares de Interés Geológico (en adelante LIG) de relevancia nacional de cada uno de los dominios geológicos del país. Este inventario está recogido expresamente en la Ley 42/2007 de patrimonio natural y la biodiversidad y del Real Decreto 556/2011, 20 de abril, para el desarrollo del Inventario Español del Patrimonio Natural y la Biodiversidad. Por este motivo, el IELIG tiene que ser representativo de la geodiversidad española y comprende LIG de todas las disciplinas de la Geología, incluyendo aquellos cuyo interés principal es de tipo paleontológico. Se han cuantificado los diferentes tipos de LIG de acuerdo a sus principales intereses taxonómico y geográfico. Algunos de ellos han sido seleccionados para relacionarlos con el patrimonio mueble y analizar los diversos factores que les han afectado a lo largo del tiempo.

  • La valoración del patrimonio geológico y paleontológico como
           herramienta de gestión: el Modelo FOPALI

    • Authors: Esteban José Sánchez-Ferris, Ignacio Fierro-Bandera, Ainara Aberasturi-Rodríguez, José Navarro-Pedreño, Plinio Montoya Belló
      Pages: 35 - 56
      Abstract: El compromiso con la preservación del patrimonio geológico y paleontológico ha constituido una prioridad para el Museo Paleontológico de Elche – Fundación Cidaris desde los inicios de su actividad. En este contexto se ha desarrollado una estrategia de trabajo (FOPALI) en el que la valoración patrimonial es concebida como una herramienta de gestión. Se exponen aquí las bases metodológicas del modelo FOPALI y las técnicas de análisis aplicadas para ofrecer a los gestores del patrimonio la información necesaria para establecer prioridades en la investigación, conservación y difusión del patrimonio geológico y paleontológico.

  • Managing palaeontological heritage: a brief overview of policy and
           practice in England

    • Authors: Jonathan. G. Larwood, Colin D. Prosser
      Pages: 57 - 64
      Abstract: Fossil collecting for scientific and educational reasons, as well as to support natural curiosity, has taken place in England since at least the late eighteenth century. It was not, however, until the late nineteenth, and particularly the mid-twentieth century, that site-based conservation of palaeontological heritage, and the management of collecting, was established. This paper provides a brief overview of the development of the policy and practice of palaeontological heritage management in England. It includes an outline of the establishment of national legislation, and a summary of the practical approaches to managing palaeontological sites and the collection of fossils that have been adopted. A number of examples are used to illustrate the application of this approach in different circumstances, including the coastal and quarrying environments.

  • Fossil heritage conservation in Scotland

    • Authors: Colin C.J. McFadyen
      Pages: 65 - 74
      Abstract: A globally significant palaeontological resource is an integral part of Scotland’s geoheritage. A strong amateur collector tradition, extending back over two centuries has helped fuel scientific advance with the fossil resource also supporting hobby collecting. However, during the long history of collecting activity, finite fossil resources have been under pressure with instances of large-scale collecting that has damaged some particularly vulnerable localities. Legislative provisions over recent decades offer robust site-based protection that will have safeguarded some of the best and most representative fossil localities. Additionally, the Scottish Fossil Code, the first national code of its type, has had a role in helping to raise awareness of Scotland’s fossil heritage and engender its responsible collecting and subsequent care. The Code as designed appears to be working to an extent. However bespoke site management approaches are required for the most vulnerable localities with additional site safeguard measures being adopted where required. Care is being given to ensure that ongoing and potential future efforts to curb occasional instances of damaging collecting activity do not operate to the detriment of the amateur collector tradition and the encouragement of interest in palaeontology particularly in younger and future generations.

  • Towards an environmental assessment model of palaeontological and
           archaeological heritage in the Autonomous Valencian Community without
           comparative torts

    • Authors: Francisco J. Ruiz-Sánchez, Carlos De Santisteban Bové, Rafael Marquina, Ana Fagoaga
      Pages: 75 - 80
      Abstract: The deficient management of the paleontological heritage through the environmental impact assessment procedures from the Valencian public administrations, linked mainly to the lack of competent technical means in the matter, results in an almost abandonment of it. On the contrary, the archaeological heritage has a series of perfectly structured tools that allow any possible impact on it regarding projects and actions subject to environmental impact assessment that can be detected and corrected. The damage that this situation creates results in the abandonment and almost absolute lack of protection of the palaeontological heritage in the Valencian Community. Despite how much has been written defending the location of paleontological heritage in the administrative field of Natural Heritage, the legal reality in the whole of the Spanish state is another, being based on its inclusion in the procedures together with the cultural heritage. This work defends the incorporation of a series of small legislative changes that make possible to equate the management of the palaeontological heritage with that of the archaeological one in the Valencian Community, thus avoiding the comparative torts that currently occur.

  • Palaeontological Heritage: protected vs. unprotected areas. The case of
           Clot de Galvany Municipal Natural Park and Elche reservoir surroundings

    • Authors: Esteban José Sánchez-Ferris
      Pages: 81 - 84
      Abstract: Concerning palaeontological and geological heritage of a particular place, being or not being under legal protection influences its preservation. As two examples, cases of Clot de Galvany Municipal Natural Park and Elche reservoir surroundings are exposed. Developed by the Palaeontologic Museum of Elche, Project FOPALI assessment methodology has been applied.

  • The negligence and lazy of the Administration: the greatest danger to the
           conservation of the unique lagerstätte sites

    • Authors: Eduardo J. Mayoral, Eladio Lińan, Ana Santos
      Pages: 85 - 94
      Abstract: An example is given of one of the most important sites in the Spanish fossil record, such as the almost a hundred moulds of ancient jellyfish of hydrozoan Medusozoa, Cnidaria, exceptionally preserved in an arkosic greywacke bedding plane of the Corduban/Terreneuvian Epoch (lowermost Cambrian) in the municipal district of Constantina (Seville). In spite of its scientific-patrimonial importance and the fact that it has been brought to the attention of the Andalusian autonomous administration for more than twenty-five years, it has still not been the object of an adequate legal protection figure. This lack of interest or bureaucratic slowness is causing an irreparable loss in many of its elements affected by erosion and the passage of time. A series of urgent actions are also proposed to mitigate the current deterioration of the site and favour its conservation.

  • Improving geoconservation of the palaeontological heritage through a
           semiotic vision

    • Authors: Maria Helena Henriques, Rui Pena Dos Reis
      Pages: 95 - 102
      Abstract: The panoply of reasons that may attract people to fossils, which result from the meaning they attribute to these palaeontological objects, may contribute to endangering of the integrity of the fossil record. Semiotics can be of great help to assist geoconservation actions, usually based only on expertise statements, and are of particular relevance in palaeontological heritage inventory, evaluation, conservation, valuation and monitoring procedures. This work argues that fossils can be envisaged as signs displaying different meanings among experts and non-specialists. Such meanings support the heritage contents and values attributable to any palaeontological object and are affected by the relevance of the meanings assigned to the objects by the scientific communities (relevance grade), and the public understanding of such meanings as result of socialization and education (abstract perceptiveness). This integrated approach to the palaeontological heritage will be the most effective way involving the community in all geoconservation actions and will promote the sustainable use of fossils as natural resources by actors other than palaeontologists.

  • The most representative vertebrate fossil record and palaeontological
           heritage from the western Pyrenees

    • Authors: Ainara Badiola, Mikel Arlegi, Humberto Astibia, Nathalie Bardet, Ana Berreteaga, J. Carmelo Corral, Ignacio Díaz-Martínez, Asier Gómez- Olivencia, Mikel A. Lopez-Horgue, Leire Perales-Gogenola, Xabier Pereda-Suberbiola
      Pages: 103 - 120
      Abstract: The western Pyrenees is a territory with a remarkable geodiversity and an important fossil record, which constitutes a large archive of palaeobiodiversity. With respect to the vertebrate fossil record, the western Pyrenees (Basque-Cantabrian Region, Pamplona Basin and the north-western sector of the Ebro Basin) are relevant both from the point of view of palaeontological sites and fossil collections. Several vertebrate fossil sites are integrated into the Inventory of Geological Interest Sites (LIG) with high to very high palaeontological interest of the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country. The valuation of the palaeobiodiversity and fossil record is an important step for the study of palaeontological heritage of a territory and the set-up of geoconservation designations (e.g., LIG, geosites). However, the mere inclusion of the palaeontological assents in these geoconservation designations does not guarantee either their protection and conservation or the suitable management of the fossil collection The scientific and cultural dissemination of the palaeontological heritage of a territory like one studied here should have greater collaboration between the palaeontologists that have valued the palaeontological assets and the technicians and institutions that manage them. This requires the provision of specific budgetary items that enable the development of the different activities of research, conservation and social dissemination of this heritage.

  • 20 years at campus: heritage assessment update for Somosaguas fossil
           geosite (Pozuelo de Alarcón, Madrid)

    • Authors: Lucía R. Sualdea, Adriana Oliver, Fernando Blanco, Iris Menéndez, Manuel Hernández Fernández, Laura Domingo, Ana Rosa Gómez Cano
      Pages: 121 - 124
      Abstract: The palaeontological heritage evaluation of the Somosaguas fossil geosite has been revised on the basis of scientific and sociocultural criteria. By means of this study have been proposed four new criteria that arise from new scientific and social trends as well as technological advances. A temporal comparison has been established with previous evaluations obtained in the years 2000 and 2012. The results indicated an increase in the initial score of the geosite in each revision. Our study shows the relevance of palaeontological heritage evaluations as useful tools to improve fossil geosites management.

      Pages: 125 - 130
      Abstract: En el presente trabajo se realiza una valoración patrimonial del conjunto de yacimientos del Mioceno inferior del barranco de Campisano (cuenca de Ribesalbes-Alcora). Los resultados obtenidos al calcular los parámetros según la metodología del Inventario Español de Lugares de Interés Geológico (IELIG) ponen de manifiesto el alto valor científico y didáctico de la zona, así como un valor turístico y recreativo medio. El riesgo de degradación es medio, por lo que debería ser tenido en cuenta para la protección de los yacimientos a corto plazo. En consonancia con estos datos, se propone la consideración de los yacimientos como LIG (Lugar de Interés Geológico) y su inclusión en el IELIG.

  • The paleontological and archaeological museum “Ildefonso Recio
           Valverde” (Totanés, Toledo). A new area for understanding our past

    • Authors: Íñigo Vitón, Miguel Ángel Cervilla-Muros, Víctor Morenos, Elena Gutiérrez Sánchez, Ángela Fraguas
      Pages: 131 - 138
      Abstract: The Palaeontological and Archaeological Museum “Ildefonso Recio Valverde” was recently opened in Totanés (Toledo). The material included in this museum mostly belonged to the personal collection of I. Recio, who donated it to this municipality to contribute to the dissemination of Palaeontology and Archaeology. Its creation, and the even more recent discovery of a Neolithic cromlech in its vicinity, provides this small village with great potential to become a centre for heritage tourism and scientific outreach. This paper presents the process of arranging the museum and cataloguing the paleontological collection, as well as outlining its value as a local museum.

      Pages: 139 - 144
      Abstract: The rise of new digitalization technologies is changing the way to access to the fossil collections for palaeontology outreach, providing new tools to preserve our important palaeontological heritage. In this sense, museums and palaeontological institutions,aware of the advantages of applying these new technologies for the accomplishment of their functions, have started to develop their own online repositories to facilitate the access to the most representative fossil of their collections. Following this trend, the aim of this work is to present the creation of the new “Virtual 3D Collection” of the University of Valencia’s Natural History Museum, showing, as an example, the “Ichnofossil Collection”. This new Virtual Collection has been shown as a powerful tool for the preservation and dissemination of our palaeontological heritage throughout its free publication in online repositories.

  • Digitisation as a tool to promote transparency between collections: the
           case of the Baltic amber from the Königsberg collection at the Museum of
           Comparative Zoology

    • Authors: Ricardo Pérez-de la Fuente, Alexander Gehler, Charles W. Farnum, Brian D. Farrell
      Pages: 145 - 152
      Abstract: A total of 383 Baltic amber samples, including 43 type specimens, held at the Museum of Comparative Zoology (MCZ), Harvard University, for near a century were found to belong to the classic amber collection from the Albertus-Universität of Königsberg. This discovery was greatly facilitated by the public availability online of digital images produced during a four year project that digitised the over 30,000 samples from the MCZ’s fossil insect collection.The amber samples were hand carried and reincorporated to the portion of the original Königsberg collection that was saved from World War II, held at the Geowissenschaftliches Museum from the Geowissenschaftliches Zentrum of the Georg-August-Universität,Göttingen. This study showcases the importance of sharing collection data through public digitised records, and highlights the understanding of digitisation not only as a tool of education, public engagement, and research, but also of rediscovery, tracking, repatriation, and ultimately safeguard of the movable palaeontological heritage on a global scale.

  • Working to the conservation and good use of the Devonian palaeontological
           heritage in Floresta, Boyacá (Colombia): a review of teaching case
           studies to engage students and the community

    • Authors: Gatsby-Emperatriz López-Otálvaro
      Pages: 153 - 162
      Abstract: The Floresta Massif, located in the Eastern Cordillera of Colombia, has a diverse and precious natural heritage. It is one of the areas that contains an exceptional palaeontological heritage of the Middle Devonian not only of Colombia, but also of South America. This heritage is represented by fossil specimens of marine fauna and terrestrial flora (correlated with North America and Europe) of the Floresta and Cuche Formations, respectively. Since 2004, actions made by several academic and research institutions, community and local government have introduced schoolchildren, teenagers and University students to art and science, and have promoted the conservation of palaeontological heritage as an essential, vibrant and relevant discipline. The high diversity of invertebrates, fishes and terrestrial plant fossils unearthed has promoted teaching and outreach projects, the creation of a small Museum of Palaeontology in the Floresta municipality, and the aim of developing a geotouristic ring road in the Floresta municipality and towns surrounding the Floresta massif. These initiatives are a lively example of conservation and good use of the palaeontological heritage of Floresta.
